Interview with Dr. Stanton Friedman


This is the first in a special series of Raiders News Network interviews focusing on the 60th Anniversary of the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico, UFO Incident.

HORN: Stanton, Roswell is the pre-eminent story of Ufology. Some say whatever occurred near Roswell, NM, in July 1947 will never be known. Others like you disagree on some levels. You and Bill Moore brought this story to light many years ago. This is the most appropriate place to start this series, so please tell us how that happened.

STAN: I first heard of Roswell in the early 1970s from a woman named Lydia Sleppy whose son was a forest ranger in California. He had had a good sighting. My associate (Bobbi Ann Slate Gironda , long deceased) and I spoke with him and he suggested we talk to his mother who had had a good sighting near Albuquerque. We did speak to her and after she told us about the sighting, she mentioned that when she had been working at an Albuquerque Radio Station in the late 1940s, she was asked to type the story coming in from a broadcaster at their Roswell affiliate station for a newswire. He dictated how a flying saucer had been recovered and was being sent to Wright Field. Part way through the story the bell went off on the machine she was using to put the story on the news wire. The FBI instructed her not to continue the transmission. She remembered the names of some of the people and I located several, but came to a dead end. I should stress that New Mexico was a hotbed of classified Research and Development activities and certainly it was expected that there would be spies and counter intelligence concerns.

The Roswell Incident put the possibility of alien life into the mainstream. Alot of people believe the governments of the world are already in contact with alien super-intelligences and have been since the Eisenhower Administration. Some even speculate that Eisenhower had to work out terms of a surrender of the nation and/or planet because the aliens threatened to destroy us before humans could take our weapons and our violence into the wider galaxy and becoming a potential threat. Thus the plethora of UFO sightings, tales of abductions, mutilations and seeing aliens like the Grays, tall White Humanoids and Reptilian-like creatures at top secret facilities since that time.

Unlike most UFO researchers, who are usually out of work journalists, Friedman is an actual nuclear physicist and rocket scientist, so he has plenty of street cred. He has lectured about UFOs since 1967 and has traveled all over the continent. Read his bio here.

Will we ever find out if this stuff is real or not? Great Spirit, God, Buddha and Mohammad only knows if I’ll live long enough for it to be resolved. It would be nice.

  1. is a good place for UFO tinfoil. They update weekly and they have good videos sometimes. I’ve posted some here before, I think. If I haven’t, tell me and I will.

  2. I plan on dealing with this subject (UFO’s) soon, on my site. It is very controversial.

  3. I released your comment from moderation, Dad, and gave my response to your questions. WordPress is not working as it should. I did not touch my settings. Apparently, it does what it likes whenever it likes.

    Blogger is more reliable in my opinion.

  4. Yeah, WordPress has been working screwy lately, snagging comments, bypassing the controls. This is my first blog, so I don’t have any other reference point. I have an old HTML book somewhere, but I can’t find it. I always thought I’d have to build my website from scratch. Maybe I’ll buy one.

    On topic, Friedman has dealt with all of the government whitewash of the UFO issue and asks pointed questions. I would really like to find out if these creatures are real or not, this would be revolutionary for mankind.

  5. On topic… like everything of a spiritual, supernatural, or cryptozoological nature, the ‘evidence’ is most always and conveniently hazy where UFO’s are concerned. Aside from all of the proven hoaxes, there are a few that are really unexplainable, but there is a spiritual answer for those that have no explanation… that much like other theories that tend to lead man away from a spiritual basis, these are designed to augment and accentuate the theory of evolution.

    This might sound biased from my view, and I would agree if it were not for the fact that atheism is an elitist tool to help undermine the social and spiritual foundation for America. With it’s cultural backbone destroyed, America is easy pickin’s and vulnerable to subjugation.

  6. Dad,

    Just a suggestion. Have a thread that asks your readers who has seen a UFO? Been abducted? I think that would be so interesting.

    I still look up at the sky each night and cross my fingers that tonight, I will see one.

    Maybe someday?

  7. derkurier: The spiritual population who believe that the NWO is using science as a substitute religion to replace the Judeo-Christian ethic does have some merit. But that is because the NWO is using science as a tool to control the population, not because science and the theory of evolution is bad. Yes, the theory of evolution does have problems, but it still has alot of physical evidence to back up its claims. Intelligent design people claim to have physical evidence to back them up also, but their evidence has been suppressed by the “evolutionists”, and the leaders of the NWO. I personally would like to see the evidence, especially the claims that antedelluvian civilizations were inhabited by giants! That would be cool!

    Christopher: Yes, I did have plans to do that at a future date. I would personally like to meet an abductee, just to hear the story!
